Sorry for bumping and double posting.....

Here's a 4-lane highway in a region of mine which starts at sea level and climbs high into the mountains...

I don't think double posting with a year gap is a problem

The last MHW I built was in 2010. This is it.

I know I posted this before in the other highway thread but I guess this qualifies as scenic:

Nice work Yoshi! :D

 

Is that a NAM bridge or did you download that somewhere?

Time to bump this thread. I have something to post

Here's a highway that stretches alongside a river in one of my regions. This section is between the interchange(Top) and a bridge just to the bottom of this photo. The highway used to tunnel through the mountain before I upgraded this section to 6 lanes

Beautiful highway, but you need a tree controller. :P

Maricopa State Highway 96, or Tucker Mountain Pass. This world famous 8 mile mountain pass used to be the main connection between Monte Christiano and Playa D'Ariana until the I-43 was built around the mountains. Nowadays mainly utilized by touring busses and sports cars, it's so dangerous it's closed off entirely between April and October each year.

You would drive on the martian highway and see sand dunes, rocks, mountains, rock arches...

@47ply: Another beautiful picture! It would be perfect if the bridge ramp was less bumpy. Are you using a slope mod? If so, you could smoothen the ramp by dragging a heavily slope-restricted network (could be rail or monorail, depending on your slope mod) from the top of the ramp towards the bottom and then bulldozing this netwok and dragging road/avenue over the freshly smoothened ramp. )

 

@__B: Wow, that looks pretty realistic considering how steep those mountains are! I know it's very hard to make good-looking serpentines, and tbh I'm yet to achiece a result that I'd call "satisfactory" myself. :lol: Together with that lookout point, it reminds me a bit of Iceland. :) Should look great once it's all dressed up with flora and rocks etc.

Thank you! Believe me, it was a pain to build. Took me almost two hours to get an acceptable look. I guess I wanted that driver's paradise appearance too bad to quit. Also, don't worry. The mmps are coming. I just wish there was an evergreen tree controller. :lol:
